Reviews from current and past clients and contractors are the most important measuring stick when choosing an architect. In this day of social media and search engine optimization where it is easy to look good on paper so to speak, it’s easy to be wowed by the most impressive presentations. At Rasmussen Architects it’s the testimonials from clients and contractors of completed projects that we feel carry the most weight when deciding who to hire.

We at Rasmussen Architects are proud of the following reviews.

Project Date: March 2012

Project: Major interior design and remodel project.

Don was extremely easy to work with and meticulous about details and engineering issues. His calm manner and expertise helped narrow down and guide us through the myriad number of choices involved in doing a major remodel, with an eye to finding us great looks for reasonable prices. He worked closely and smoothly with our contractor, and designed many unique touches for our home. Impressively, he turned me from a home design phobic to a confident ‘maker of choices’ (decider?) Best of all we absolutely love living in the finished product! I highly recommend Don.

Project: Bonus Room addition/new Kitchen

We had a major remodel done to our house and Don Rasmussen was our architect. We added a new loft over our garage and did a total remodel of our kitchen. Don was the perfect architect for us. For example, he was able to design a perfect room and kitchen and gave us insight on things we hadn’t even thought of. For example putting a dormer window in the loft to make the roof line higher. He was in tune with our needs and did a fantastic job with the outside of the house as well. We are very pleased with his expertise and ability to listen to his customers. Don was always friendly, helpful and very professional. We enjoyed working with him and highly recommend him to anyone who needs a personal touch in their architecture plans.

Relationship: Builder/Colleague

As a custom home builder, Cutuli homes has worked with Don Rasmussen for the past 8 years on a large number of projects, both large and small, encompassing many different styles of construction. We have always been very confident referring him to our clients for their architectural needs. Don is very thoughtful as he helps the client develop a plan that works for their needs. He skillfully designs visually aesthetic plans tailored to the individual client’s preferences. The clients have been extremely happy with his designs. Don has the important ability to understand the cost associated with the projects he designs, so there are no surprises once the plans are given to a builder. As a builder, I appreciate the accuracy of his plans, especially on remodels. Don is the perfect choice for any client because he understands and beautifully implements the balance between design, cost and practicality. I highly recommend Don for your architectural needs.

Project: New Custom Residence

Don designed and guided the construction of our home in Kirkland, WA. It is a wonderful home and fits exactly the ideas we had for what our home would be like. Don is not only a creative architect, but designs with good building practices in mind. If we ever build another home, Don would be our first choice as the architect.
